Wish-Granting Factory

“The world is not a wish-granting factory.” -John Green: The Fault in our Stars. 
So, I just finished reading this epic book by John Green. And I can't seem to absorb how breathtaking it is. I'm such a sucker for anything inspirational and this is just mind-blowing. I also read that they will be releasing the movie version soon. Let's just wish that the movie will be as legendary as the book. *fingers-crossed*
Onto my outfit... If you'd take away the accessories and all those shizz, you'll see a plain and boring outfit. But that's the deal, being the lazy person that I am, I would at times be really unconcerned with what I'm wearing and I thank the people who  artistically created pieces (and i'm talking about accessories) to help someone like me. HAHAHA. 
Can we all take a moment and just stare at this masterpiece??? I mean, c'mon! This is like finding that perfect shoe or piece of clothing you've been dying to have! Hahaha. 
And yes, the bag is an envelope clutch and a sling bag in one! You'll definitely see this bag in this bloggy for a million more times.

Pilot Your Life

Before anything else let me just say... Better late than never! So, these photos were taken during the launch of TW Steel's Pilot Collection and "Pilot Your Life" campaign. 
The press luncheon was held last May 21 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel then the Cocktail Party was held at the Mid-way Level 2-3 of the Mall. Moving on, it was fun, exciting and very inspirational. Marvin Agustin, Venus Raj, Coach Rio and Azkals' Chieffy Caligdong was chosen as the "Icons of Inspiration". Knowing their stories and their drive to pursue their dreams and turn them into reality is beyond amazing. I, myself is a self-confessed dreamer. An optimistic one I must say. But there are times that we would feel down and hopeless. However, these Icons chose to continue and work harder to reach their goals. And I believe that everyone should do the same. Never give up!!
Onto the CEO of TW Steel. This one is exciting, did you know that Mr. Jordy Cobelens was a DJ! Yes, you read that right! Before all of this, he was working his stuff and making great music! I'm a big fan of DJs and I once dreamt of being one. Hahaha. I can't seem to absorb how successful and young he is. His passion for what he does is exhilarating.
As expected, the event was attended by the media, celebrities and of course, bloggers!! 
During that day, they also opened their newest store! The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by these gorgeous people. TW Steel also has a worldwide promo. If you've purchased a watch from any of their collections, you are entitled to join their promo. And the best part is, the prize is your dream. TW Steel will grant your wish (ex. A car, a house or maybe a new business). Cool right? For full mechanics you can visit their website: HERE

I can say that i'm really lucky to be able to listen and see Jordy Cobelens do his thing! Oh and yes, the gorgeous ladies behind him are Ornussa Cadness and Sanya Smith of The Zombettes.

And of course, a photo with the very young and successful CEO of TW Steel, Mr. Jordy Cobelens. 
Fan-girl mode: On! They're just to pretty! Hi Sanya and Ornussa! ♥

If you guys are wondering, I wasn't there to do my "blogger duties". I was actually a part of the PR Team under Ms. Rochelle Romero. It feels great to be a part of something this successful. Hopefully, i'd get the chance to do more in the future. ♥

Tell Me No Lies

This has got to be one of my most "sabaw" moments! (Sabaw is the state of having a blank and useless brain! HAHAHA.) I can't even think of a title, still swamped and hungover from yesterday's experience. So, what I did was, I listened to my current LSS track to find an awesome line. This is what I ended up with, got it from Can't Make You Love Me by Bonnie Raitt (but I'm currently addicted to Leroy Sanchez' version, look him up on Youtube). 
Anyway, yesterday was extremely fun, except for the insane rain and crazy MRT ride. I've been riding the train but I've never experienced anything like that before. Girls can get really crazy and mean. So, if you're thinking of riding the train, come prepared. Hahaha.
On to my outift, (oooh, I'm in the mood to talk today!) I got my top from Blogger United 5, too bad I forgot whom I got if from. It can actually pass off as a dress, but I chose to wear it this way. I'll try to use it as a dress next time. Since my top is already heavy (literally) with all those metal rings/holes, I ditched my necklace, and wore spikey accessories instead. I was in the "tough" zone yesterday! Hahaha.

Enough of my blabbering. :P
Hope everyone will have a great week ahead! Peace and Love! ♥

It's A Cycle

I love it when I get awesome pieces from my mum's or grandmother's closet! Yes, you read that right! I actually borrowed (or maybe stole :P) this from one of 'em. I actually don't know who owns this, all I know is that I love it. If it isn't obvious, fashion is a cycle. Trends from the past will definitely make a come back in the present world, we just don't know when, but it will. Just take denim for example. This has been around for a really long time, but it's still here, and this (our) generation is actually loves it. Do you agree with me? :) 
Anyway, just look at the details on my top. It made this top extra special. ♥

I actually wore this ensemble to a day out with my best buds! I can say that I wore the right outfit! We tried Iscreamist! T'was my first time to try it, and I can say that everyone should, too! It's amazing and fun! Then we went to UP to play Duck Pins! Found a new favorite place. ♥ 

Enjoy the weekend guys! ♥

Snapshot: Denim (16)

Ooooh. I love it when it rains, and i'm inside the house. Perfect for a movie night, or maybe a marathon of my favorite series or maybe, you know, just a regular blog night. Another thing that I love is these set of Snapshot photos. They look so serene. Oh how I missed my Snapshot series! It's like a post filled with #selfies! Hahaha. You guys know how trendy selfies are. Everybody loves 'em! 
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (@jac_pequena)(or even Facebook), you might have seen my post about taking selfies to a higher level! And yes, I love my instax! :) 
Ring - Romwe

Anyway, have a great week ahead! Start your week right, mmkaaay? :) <3

Center of Attention

Before anything else, I just want to congratulate the people behind Bloggers United! The fifth installment was awesome (as expected)! Congratulations BU Team! I guess it's every blogger's dream to be a part of Bloggers United! Self-confessed fanatic and hopeful here. HAHA!  Anyway, this is what I wore to the recently concluded BU5. 
I swear,  I instantly fell in love when I saw this top! The print is just...ahhh! It's too cute! It was actually the center of attention during the interactive bazaar, okay okay, maybe not the center of attention but tons of people praised him for his extreme cuteness! If only my shirt could talk, it would thank everyone. :) 
And of course, the ever so famous, skater skirt! Hahaha.

Since Sweater Weather is here, but Mr. Sun is still brightly shining on our lives (HAHA!). I decided to wear something that can fit the two. A sweater-ish top + shorts and a scarf that you can wear when it gets pretty chilly. 

I think I'll never get tired of using this scarf! I mean, just look at the fabric! It's just...AMAZING! 
Another thing I'm (very) obsessed with is this necklace that has rings as pendants! Talk about hitting 4 birds with one stone! Yes, 4! Well, you have a necklace and 3 rings. The rings are really pretty too. <3

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (@jac_pequena), you might have seen this pair of awesome greatness. These babies are (slightly) overused. Slightly, because I try to stop myself from wearing it because if I don't they might die sooner.
